1.13 Cartman’s Mom is a Dirty Slut

Cartman’s Mom is a Dirty Slut

Aired: February 25, 1998

The title of this episode may be the truest fact in the South Park universe. Cartman’s mom get’s around, and if I were the only parent of Eric Cartman, I’d probably need that release too.

This is the final episode of season 1. Once again, I have a vague recollection of this episode. Honestly, what I remember might just be from the follow up episode in season 2. Have I mentioned how excited I am about season 2? I expect my episode scores in season 2 to be unfairly high.

The history of this episode is pretty interesting. According to wikipedia, this episode has the largest audience of any episode in the entire series at 6.4 million. This is the first part of a two part episode that was initially planned to to kick off season 2, but Matt and Trey had other things in mind. Similar to George Clooney’s appearance earlier in the season, Jay Leno supposedly makes a guest appearance to only make cat sounds.

In 2013 fans voted this episode as the best episode of season. We will be the judge of that.

Matt’s Review

This episode starts with Cartman not showing up for school 3 days in a row. The rest of the boys decide to go see what is going on with him. They see him having a tea party in his backyard and talking to himself. They record this and end up sending it into America’s Stupidest Home Videos. Cartman continues to seem off and he asks his mom who is dad is. This begins a process of Cartman searching for his dad. He first thinks it is Chief Runningwater then Chef then Mr. Garrison. He then decides he needs to get a DNA test but needs $3,000. The boys end up winning runner-up for their video submission and win $3,000 and give it to Cartman to get the DNA test. Episode ends before we find out.
